Greenbrier author to present new book at the Faulkner County Library

Twylla Alexander, author of Labyrinth Journeys: 50 States, 51 Stories will read from her newly published book, and sign copies for purchase, on May 4 at 7:00 PM.

Twylla stepped into her first labyrinth in 2004, unaware that labyrinths would lead her on a life-changing journey almost ten years later.Traveling isn’t new to her, having lived with her husband and three children in Arkansas, Alaska, Singapore, Cairo, Moscow and New York City. But a two-year journey to visit labyrinths and their creators, in all fifty states, was a personal pilgrimage.

Following retirement as a speech-language pathologist and elementary school teacher, Twylla has focused on her writing. She has blogged for seven years, most recently on New York City Reflections. Her writing has appeared in Lower Manhattan’s Downtown Magazine.

Labyrinth Journeys: 50 States, 51 Stories is her first published book. She is a Veriditas-certified Labyrinth Facilitator and conducts labyrinth retreats, providing the space and time for women to explore their own journeys. Most mornings, you can find Twylla in her backyard, walking the labyrinth that she and her family created at their home near Greenbrier.
